>pleased to announce "Connectivity: The Tenth Biennial Symposium on Arts 
>and Technology", March 30 - April 1, 2006.  The mission of the 
>symposium is to present new works, research and performances in the 
>areas of technology and the arts.  The symposium will consist of 
>commissioned works, paper sessions, panel discussions, art exhibitions, 
>interactive environments, music concerts, screenings and multi-media 
>performances. In an effort to demystify the artistic process and create 
>a forum for dialogue, we are encouraging all presenters and artists to 
>speak about their work at the symposium.

>Cognition, Compositional and Artistic Process, Social and Ethical 
>Issues in Arts and Technology, Art, Music, Video, Film, Animation,

>Visualization, Virtual Reality, and other pertinent topics relating to 
>arts and technology.
>Proposals for new, original, interdisciplinary works will be accepted 
>for a "Commissioned" category. Works must be created by a team 
>consisting of two or more members, and must combine two or more areas 
>of creative expression and contain a major technology component. 
>Proposals will be accepted for performances, concerts, showings or 
>installations; completed works will be presented during the symposium. 
>Proposals must include detailed technical and production requirements, 
>and a proposed budget.  Limit of one proposal per team.  The piece must 
>not have been previously published, performed or exhibited.  Awards 
>will be granted at the
>discretion of the Center.   Submissions not accepted for the

>submissions category.   Accepted commissions will be awarded a 
>stipend of $3000 and a residency at Connecticut College between March 
>27 and April 1 that includes:
>-      performance or installation of the accepted work

>of speakers. Papers may be grouped by the Center in a panel discussion 
>Proposals for panel discussions are encouraged.  Proposals should 
>include names of prospective panelists and topic, which should address

>Music submissions (composition, performance, theory, interactivity, 
>signal processing and music understanding) are encouraged. Works for 
>instruments, digital media, CD or interactive compositions are also 
>being solicited for "tape only" concerts or live performance. Works 
>should not exceed 15 minutes in length and should be submitted with 
>accompanying score, where appropriate.  Music must be submitted on
>CD for review, with accompanying scores as required.   Musicians, 
>dancers and actors may be available for live performance pieces. All 
>submissions must be accompanied by a one page description/abstract for 
>presentation at the symposium about the work. Complete technical and 
>performance requirements must be included.
>Submissions of digital art, web art and other technology-based or

>interactive works, self-contained web works, time based work, 
>performance and installations will be considered. Acceptance may be 
>constrained by technical needs, security and financial considerations. 
>Artworks will be reviewed on the basis of documentation of the work 
>presented in the form of a website, CD, DVD, VHS or slides.  
>Submissions must include a one-page description/abstract for 
>presentation at the symposium about the work, portfolio (maximum 4 
>jpegs, no larger than 2 Mb each), brief biography, contact details, and

>Submissions of short video or film works that include a significant 
>'technology' component in their creation, aesthetic or theme are 
>encouraged. The 'tech' involved may be 'high' or 'low', ranging from 
>digital animations and motion capture work on the 'high-tech'
>end to various methods of creating film without photography, or novel 
>uses of the projector beam on the low tech side. Works that display 
>worthy reflections on the nexus of art, society and technology, even if 
>created by primarily 'conventional' means, are encouraged. Submissions 
>in the category of 'expanded cinema' and projection performance will be 
>accepted, but resources are limited and artists presenting such work 
>should expect to bring all or much of their own essential gear. 
>Submissions must include a one-page description/abstract of the work 
>and VHS, DV or DVCAM tape, DVD (tape preferred). For works involving 
>anything other than standard video or 16mm projection, a complete 
>description of technical and space needs is required.  Exhibition 
>format will be DV, DVCAM, or 16mm film (no home-burned DVDs).Selection 
>for screening may be made in part on the maker's willingness/ability to 
>attend the symposium.
>Computer-generated or computer-aided dance compositions and theater 
>works are being solicited for live demonstrations or for videotaped 
>presentations.  Specially produced dance or theater videos are of 
>particular interest as opposed to concert tapes or other archival uses 
>of video.  Also of interest are proposals for workshops, demonstrations 
>of software for dance or theater notation, choreographic analysis, 
>interactive studies and/or multi-media studies of performance in dance 
>and theater.  Performances may be accepted, but will be limited by
